21 Weeks Pregnant Update: This week is so exciting because we finally get to find out the sex of our baby. For the longest time we've been calling our little human "baby". Now that we know what the gender our baby is, we can finally start planning and decorating the nursery!
Dave thinks it's a girl and even bet me $100 that it's a little munchkin! I have been pretty neutral about the sex of our baby the whole time. 1. I want to give the boy a chance! 2. I just pray that it's a healthy child. I'm not greedy!
It's a GIRL!
She's a little bit of a stubborn girl like her mom I think. I have to go back for a follow up ultrasound because she wouldn't turn to allow for a heart profile photo. I literally had to wiggle around on the bed. Walk around the room. And do other really awkward poses for 45 mins. Thank goodness there were no cameras!!
Also My belly is really popping and I think I need to start buying maternity clothes. I can only wear my tees and leggings now. And my favorite demin shirts needs to be unbuttoned.
Here's a couple really cute pieces I think would be great for Spring!
How I'm Feeling
- Energy level is up from previous weeks. I feel like I want to go out with friends, go to events and walks.
- I don't crave apple juice or root beer as much as I did earlier on.
- I have pretty clear skin.
- I noticed hair growth in random places. Time to go waxing and threading!
- Need to take frequent breaks and walk around in the office because sitting down for long periods aches my back.
- Also it's getting pretty warm. This little furnace inside me keeps me warm!
Since My Last OB visit
Her heart rate was very strong at 150. You can hear it thumping really loud!
I've barely gained a few kilos and have not started swelling. Majority of the weight gain is still in the front belly. If you look from the backside, you can't really tell I'm pregnant. I'm so glad it's been all baby so far!
We are looking into baby strollers and car seats now. I want to be able to try it out before I get too clumsy.
